My current Honda Hawk gt 650 gets 52 mpg, and i am not nursing it it has a 3.2 gallon tank, so theoretically I could go 140 to 150 on a tank, maybe better if i went easier. I have gotten as high as 55.
If this bike gets real world 60 plus MPG, I'll be delighted. That's a safe range of 240 with a half gallon/30 miles in reserve.
